Ground Rush Adventures / Skydive Swakopmund is open seven days a week all year round and skydiving happens daily (weather permitting).
Students and spectators are collected with the Ground Rush Adventures courtesy vehicles and brought to the office for paper work, where after they taken to the Drop Zone which is in the beautiful Namib Desert, adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean for tandem skydiving. After the experience of a lifetime the students are taken back to their accommodation.
All skydiving at Ground Rush Adventures / Skydive Swakopmund is operated under the control of the Parachute Association of Namibia (PANAM) which is the governing body for all forms of skydiving in Namibia.

Tandem Skydiving

Ground Rush Adventures / Skydive Swakopmund started Tandem skydiving in Namibia in 1997 and to date has done over 37 000 tandem skydives in Swakopmund making it one of the largest and most organized tandem operation on the African continent, boasting an impeccable safety record. Ground Rush Adventures is a member of the Namibian Tourism Board.

At our offices indemnities are filled out before skydiving, and different camera and video options are explained to the students.
After driving out to the Drop Zone which is in the beautiful Namib Desert, adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, you get trained and dresses to go skydiving. With your tandem master you take a short walk to the aircraft, and that is when your adventure begins.  During the twenty-five minute breathtaking scenic flight up to 10 000 feet above Swakopmund and surrounding areas, your tandem master will re-brief and crosscheck all the skydiving equipment, and ensures that you are confident and comfortable and ready to skydive. At 10 000 feet just prior to exit you put on the skydiving goggles, shuffle to the door and with a “ready  set  go” you fall from the aircraft. As you fall towards the ground at a speed of approximately 200km/h the fresh Atlantic air rushes by. Your adrenalin kicks in and you finally know what it feels like to fly. After your adrenalin rushed 30 sec of freefall the tandem master deploys the parachute and you gently slow down as the canopy inflates above. A comfortable ride under a fully inflated parachute lowers you gently down, until you touchdown safely back on the desert floor.
